AMD is anticipated to formally reveal its Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000-series processors outfitted with 3D V-Cache at CES 2023, though it’s not but formally confirmed. Nonetheless, a South Korean media report says the corporate is getting ready to introduce three new Ryzen 7000 X3D processors with 96 MB or 192 MB L3 cache in January.
The three Ryzen 7000 X3D fashions will allegedly characteristic 16, 12, and eight cores, in accordance with Quasarzone, a preferred South Korean publication (the report was kindly translated for the world by @harukaze5719). The processors are anticipated to be unveiled in January, so Intel will seemingly announce them at CES to draw most consideration to the brand new components and their capabilities.
The report by Quasarzone is considerably corroborated by a tweet from @All_The_Watts!, which signifies that there are three CPUs incoming and even mentions a few of their specs. It additionally clarifies that the components can have clocks just like common fashions, and the Ryzen 7000 X3D processors will ship in March.
- Ryzen 9 7950X3D: 16 MB L2, 192 MB L3, 170W
- Ryzen 9 7900X3D: 12 MB L2, 192 MB L3, 170W
- Ryzen 7 7800X3D: 8 MB L2. 96 MB L3, 170W
Whereas the knowledge seems to be believable, remember the fact that we’re coping with unofficial preliminary knowledge, so take it with a grain of salt.
3D V-Cache makes essentially the most sense for reminiscence bandwidth and single-thread performance-depending workloads. For consumer PCs, this typically means gaming. Certainly, even after AMD launched its newest merchandise, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D remains to be one of many finest CPUs for gaming. Moreover, the Ryzen 7000 X3D components are anticipated to realize much more from 3D V-Cache attributable to doubtlessly increased bandwidth, additional strengthening their efficiency within the aforementioned workloads and purposes.
Launching three Ryzen 7000X3D fashions with 3D V-Cache and increasing the lineup of X3D CPUs for consumer PCs from one (within the case of the Ryzen 5000 household) to 3 (for the Ryzen 7000 sequence) is an fascinating transfer by AMD.
On the one hand, increasing the household of 3D V-Cache-enabled desktop CPUs will strengthen AMD’s choices for gaming and can seemingly democratize their pricing, which is able to make it simpler for AMD to compete towards Intel. However alternatively, they are going to overlap with processors with out 3D V-Cache and cannibalize some gross sales of components with increased core counts.
